a cooperation by the Faculty for Architecture and Planning at Vienna University of Technology with the Az W
The cities and towns of Europe are experiencing profound structural changes as a result of globalisation and social redistribution, demographic shifts and political redesign, administrational rigidity and parallel economies. In the process, what was understood under the term ‘European city’, in particular, appears to be becoming increasingly diffuse. How can concepts for sustainable urban development be formulated in the future? The panel discussion looks for answers to the questions about continuity and the challenges involved, and how reorientation for the design of cities and urban living space is to be achieved in the future.
